A Little Sparkly White Trio

Hi, I'd like to share a little triple hanging I've made with some new bits I got for Xmas.  My new year resolution is to enter all those challenges that I love the look of, so I'm making a start with some of my new stuff:

I used three pages of a Tando chipboard mini book and covered them with Inka Gold in Platinum - I've never used this stuff before but can now see myself becoming highly addicted - it's fantastic!  I added some letter text, in Brilliance White, with a script stamp from Hero Arts, and WOW White Sparkle EP around the edges (but more so on the middle one further down).

For the top piece, I wrapped some white glittered ribbon around the centre, embossed a small metal frame with Wow ep, and a heart on to pearlised card with white ep, and attached them together with white brads.  I die cut a butterfly from white pearl card and embossed, and a pen nib highlighted with Viva Precious Metal colour in MOP.  A word tile "Love" and some white pearls to finish:

For the middle piece, I used one of my new stamps on glossy card, from the Portrait of a Lady plate (The Stampsmith), with Stone Grey then lightly inked with DI in Old Paper.  I mounted onto white card, added some shimmering net fabric underneath then mounted again.  A piece of off white/cream card underneath lightly stamped with text, and two metal corners embossed with white twinkle ep:

For the bottom piece, more glittered white ribbon across the centre and a flower made from cream/white fabric petals (the ones that are used for decorating tables at weddings).  A broken jewellery piece as the centre, some glossy accents added to the petals, then a sprinkling of white glitter:

I've punched some holes and attached all three pieces together with ribbon, then more ribbon to hang.

Tando are looking for Ice White creations and have a photo for some inspiration, the Fashionable Stamping Challenge's current challenge is Anything Goes - using your new stash, and The Stampsmith would like to see Shimmer, Sparkle and Shine

I would also like to enter:

Crafty Creations Challenge - Heat Embossing
Ladybug Crafts Ink TLT Challenge - Anything Goes Using Your New Stash
Really Reasonable Ribbon Challenge - Sparkle and Ribbon Creations

Hope you like it.
